Om nom nom.

Okay so I know this blog is primarily about gender and development, but some things are just too good to keep to yourself.

I found this recipe for Mock Duck à L’Orange which I’m rather excited about. It serves two people and takes less than 30 minutes to prepare – perfect!

You will need:

For the orange sauce:

– Juice of 2 oranges and the zest of 1

– 100ml/4fl oz vegetable stock

– ½ tsp arrowroot, dissolved in a little cold orange juice

For the duck:

– 1 tin of mock duck or seitan

– 1 tsp olive oil

– salt and black pepper

Plus whatever side vegetables you like.

To make:
– If cooking new potatoes, pop them on to cook now.

– Heat the orange juice, zest and stock in a frying pan.

– Add the arrowroot and stir in well.

– Bring to the boil and simmer until the sauce is reduced by half.

– Drain the liquid from the mock duck/seitan. I find that placing it onto a clean tea towel or some kitchen roll and squeezing the moisture out with a spatula to get rid of as much moisture as possible is the best way.

– Season to taste and fry the ‘meat’ in some olive oil until both sides are brown.

– Serve with the orange sauce and potatoes (and whatever other veggies you decide to cook).
– Enjoy!
